for him, positive for him, well received by the israeli people. >> and with benjamin netanyahu, we all know he hasn't always had the warmest relationship. in the words the prime minister spoke and in body language. at one point, the president seemed to be trying to block anyone from lip reading as they were having a little conversation. if this was a success, how does he move it forward? >> let me say you were right. i was at that state dinner sitting right in front of him, and the two of them were slapping each other on the back, whispering in each other's ears, telling each other jokes, and i think whatever negativity there was i think the vast majority of it is gone and we have to move on from here. i think we move on from here by trying to get a peace agreement between israel and the palestinians, but let's put things in perspective. the israelis said they will sit down in face to face negotiations no preconditions and the palestinians have refused, and president obama many times on this trip said the only way you can have a peace agreement is face to face negotiations no preco
